Usually I dress not for the occasion but more for the interior but it's quite difficult to blend in to a place that's millions of years old and so beautiful. The sun was shining on the other side of the black Rock which formed the perfect shadow to shoot in. 🖤🖤🖤 📸 @vidarlogi for @kingkongmagazine
I discovered the amazing work of @vidarlogi via @james.t.merry 🙏 I'm not easily impressed by photographers but I found his work beautiful. I met him at my show and asked if he would consider collaborating. I wanted to wear my some of my exhibition garments for the final time in a series of images shot around Iceland. He said yes, I went in with a very cliché idea of what Iceland should look like but he chose the most beautiful places you wouldn't usually see on tourists Instagram feeds. I think these are by far the best photos that represent my art work and who I am. The whole shoot can be seen in the Worship edition of @kingkongmagazine. #daniellismore#kingkongmagazine#vidarlogi#iceland
📸 @vidarlogi for @kingkongmagazine This photo was taken on a misty mountain side with the arctic fox whistling and cackling at us from behind a rock. Not knowing it was a fox I thought could the Elfs be real they come out to cause trouble in the mist? The clothing in this image and all of these images from #KingKong magazine shoot are featured in @daniellismoreexhibition in 3D tapestry lifesize sculptures of my life. This is probably the last time I wear any of these pieces as I would rather share it with the world in museums and help some people realise that they can be themselves no matter how different they are. The show in Iceland really opened my mind to how kind people can be whether they understand my work or not. #worship#iceland#vidarlogi#daniellismore full story in worship edition of #kingkongmagazine
This is the first in a series of images by @vidarlogi taken over 5 days of shooting around the most beautiful parts of #iceland. I may have risked my life numerous times during the shoot. Here's me in a freezing water, with mud up to my knees thinking I was going to drown, with my body about to go into shock. It was well worth it! The images are featured in the worship edition of @kingkongmagazine out today! More images to follow!
🙏 @kingkongmagazine WORSHIP OF ICELAND #daniellismore. For our sixth digital cover, the final installation of our Worship Issue cover-rollout, Artist #Daniellismore takes us way up north, presenting a series of 'living sculptures' set in breathtaking Icelandic landscapes. On a personal level for Lismore, the series is a worship and tribute to #Iceland with an accompanying poem detailing his love and enchantment for the Nordic island featured in the issue. On a broader note, the cover is a worship of multidisciplinary design; the intersection between fashion and art and the way garments can transiently overlap with our notion of sculpture. Photographs @vidarlogi. "Worship" issue of #kingkongmagazine out Oct 12th. #vidarlogi#reykjavik
